Fiona Long is a British artist who will be working in collaboration with two artists from our upcoming Infinite Strokes exhibition in order to explore hidden shapes and symbols within Chinese calligraphy. Having graduated in both art and psychology, Fiona is fascinated by in the way in which we cognitively interpret images. Using Chinese calligraphy symbols as the starting point for her research Fiona will be spending the residency investigating Chinese characters and taking part in calligraphy workshops. Her work will focus on symbols which resemble one thing, but in translation mean something completely different. Fiona intends to transform these traditional symbols in the hope that her interpretations alter the meanings of characters whilst also aiming to show how images can transcend language.
